Novak Djokovic certainly has a way with words, which he showed us again recently.
After his first-round victory at the Australian Open, he told on-court interviewer Jim Courier that, because of his success over the past 12 months, he needs to “make more babies” with wife Jelena Ristic.
Before that, the world No. 1 described his hilarious, nothing-goes-right first date with Ristic—to whom he’s been married since July of 2014—in a new series of advertisement for wine brand Jacob’s Creek.
Problem 1: He took her to a sports bar. In Monte Carlo, mind you!
Problem 2: He sought to order her entree for her.
Problem 3: Two words: steak tartare.
With tennis currently taking place Down Under, Djokovic also shared the three items he’d toss on the “barbie” (that’s barbecue for the unacquainted). Namely, those three things are … his in-laws. Yep, Ristic’s mother, father, and brother.
Now that would make for a truly awkward family function.
